The news has been . . . mournful and frustrating. I don't have enough energy for it all. I have had some bad days this week with my depression and I am trying to keep my spirits up.
This is something gratitude list can really help with. these are the times when if you are losing hope you can go to them, if you keep them, and remind yourself that there are little sparkles in the darkness. It can help.
